lost assets of 11.3 million. and as required under the san francisco administrative code, the library administration has reported that funds extended to carry out or assist any function in the library during that period was only 4.9 million. this means that after having received income in that same period of $40 million of which the public library got not one red cent, the library received only 43 touch-tone 2% of the reduction in assets. having claimed it would raise $0 million for furniture, fixtures and equipment, the library would have been ahead and received four times the benefit if the friends had gone out of business and turned over its assets in the year 2000. not only to the board of supervisors not hold these fund-raisers accountable, but the most unscrupulous supervisors will go to library openings to support the friends of the library and present themselves as benefactors of the city. the corporate philanthropyists like the friends are exempt from accountability because that is what they get for their money. the real damage is to our democracy and the public institutions
